Panorama Mix Bee Balm

Panorama Mix Bee Balm 100 Non-GMO, Open Pollinated Seeds

$3.93

Native to North America. The bee balm flower has an open, daisy-like shape, with tubular petals in shades of red, pink, purple and white.  Eye-catching edible blooms. Popular in perennial flower gardens. Medicinal: Aerial parts in infusions to improve digestion. Leaves and blooms contain thymol-related antibiotic-antiseptic compounds. Seeds are very tiny.  Add bee balm to flower beds or an herb garden for life and color. Try growing bee balm in view of a window so you won’t miss the acrobatics of hummingbirds that visit in summer. Bee balm also attracts butterflies and bees. In a sunny field or meadow, let plants spread and multiply to create a blanket of color.  Use fresh flowers as a garnish for green salads, fruit salads, cakes, or preserves. The aromatic leaves serve as a substitute for mint and can be dried for tea. Dried leaves and flowers are also useful in sachets and potpourri.  Blooms in 365 days. 

Although it will tolerate drought, bee balm will do much better if it gets adequate moisture; however, protect it from poor drainage, especially in winter. Water when leaves wilt in dry weather. Mulch in the spring. In the late fall, cut plants back to within several inches of the ground. For a bushier shrub, pinch the tips of the stems when new growth appears each spring.  Bee balm spreads but not as aggressively as other members of the mint family. Every 3 or 4 years, dig up and divide the plants. Discard the old center section and replant the outer roots and shoots.  If allowed to seed, it will come back year after year.

Bee Balm is susceptible to powdery mildew.  Treat with an organic fungicide.  Pre-treat if the season has been wetter than usual.
